PADI And GoPro Launch Video Contest

GoPro and PADI have teamed up to launch a video contest aimed at capturing your best diving moments.

The contest is split into three distinct competitions to highlight skills including capturing and editing videos:

  • The CAPTURE competition runs through April 30, 2019, and invites participants to submit footage of great underwater experiences.
  • The EDIT competition runs from Jul 1 to July 15, 2019, and contestants will be tested on their editing skills via several pieces of footage courtesy of GoPro.
  • The CAPTURE/EDIT allows participants to present the complete package of their skills and runs from September 16 through October 31, 2019.

Commenting about the competition, President and CEO of PADI Worldwide Dr. Drew Richardson stated:

“Whether you’re passionate about serious videography or just snapping casual shots (and we need both), your images have power… They can influence. You can use them to communicate with others about the oceans and underwater world at a time in history when it matters most.”

GoPro’s Global Director of Lifestyle Marketing Christian Scott said:

“GoPro is a leader in underwater content creation, so teaming up with PADI to help capture and share underwater exploration is a natural fit… By educating PADI Divers on using GoPro for diving, we will make it easier than ever for anyone to capture their most memorable dives and share their experiences from all corners of the globe.”

The competitions are open to both professionals and amateurs.
